Murray Valley Encephalitis virus detected in Victoria, one day after NSW


Murray Valley Encephalitis virus detected in Victoria, one day after NSW:

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2023-01-13/murray-valley-encephalitis-virus-detected-in-victoria/101851530

Mildura Rural City Council is urging people to avoid getting bitten by mosquitoes, after Murray Valley Encephalitis virus was detected in the area.

The Victorian Health Department confirmed the positive test yesterday.

It marks the first time a case of MVE virus has been found in Victoria in more than a decade.

Hardly surprising since it is only separated by the width of the Murray, mosquitoes have been known to populate both sides of the river.

The name " Murray Valley Encephalitis virus" should have provided a clue as to where it may be lurking.

It is not very nice to get either. Make sure to use some form of protection, out of the possible 1000 choices.

Together with Japanese Encephalitis & Ross River Fever it makes for a perfect storm.

We won't be going anywhere near the Murray River this year.

A friend of mine who was the same age as me developed Ross River Fever after a visit to the Murray around 5 years ago.

It caused both his hands to become deformed with arthritis.

He died 2 years ago.

86GTS is scaremongering.

Look up the facts rather than what "some bloke on the internet says."

 Didn't refer to or look up the internet at all DH. Life experience only.

Hopefully you get all three of these diseases, preferably all at the same time. 

You'll never learn will you. laughing.gif

 Not usually as other would testify to.

I've just grown tired of that particular idiotic trouble maker following me around this forum.

He's had multiple arguments with almost everyone on this forum, its about time he was shown the door IMO.
